Texas Governor Rick Perry announced his candidacy for the Republican Party’s nomination to become the next president of the United States on August 13. Since that day, he’s catapulted to the top of the polls and then just as quickly fell back to the middle of the pack of contenders. With only a week left before the Iowa Caucuses on January 3, many observers wonder whether Perry’s campaign can survive if he doesn’t pull off an impressive showing there.
But instead of worrying that we won’t get to see Perry play on the national stage much longer, let’s appreciate the grand entertainment to which we’ve been treated these last several months.
